. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from the district of columbia, ms. norton, for five minutes. ms. norton: thank you, madam speaker. as we end the 112th congress, we are faced with two crises. cliff ryecies and now a gun crisis, a mental health crisis that comes to us from newtown, connecticut. when you consider that this is a congress which has not been able to handle even modern issues much less crises, one begins to wonder whether we will evoke to what is required of any person who is a member of the united states congress. this morning, i come for something less than a crisis for the country, easier, much easier to solve. i am calling on the defense authorization conference committee to solve a simple noncrisis problem. a problem, though, that casts shame on our treatment of our active duty military, our veterans, and their families. thanks to chairman buck mckeon and ranking member adam smith, the defense authorization bill contains a simple provision. that provision says that when you raise the flags of the 50 states at military ceremonies, if you're raising or displaying the flags

the district of columbia, ms. norton, talk about the fact that we now are going to have recognition of flags in the district of columbia for our veterans. and there is inclusion in this conference report that deals with that issue. . flags are used to recognize their presence and of course veterans from the states across the country, the district of columbia hasn't. i'm pleased that ms. norton was able to have that issue addressed in the national defense authorization act conference report. and so this is a measure which i believe really transcends political party, there's great bipartisan support for it and it also covers lots of important issues that do come back to our nation's security. and so i believe, mr. speaker, that as we look again at those five most important words from my perspective in the middle of the preamble of the u.s. constitution, providing for the common defense, that we are doing that and exactly that with this measure. so i encourage my colleagues to support this conference -- the rule and the conference report that we will have and i believe it will be of great benef
